I'll tell you what all the HYPE is about....
These fine young teens from the local YMCA Hype Teen Camp used their time & energy to help the Harvest of Hope Garden on Friday. HYPE, Helping Youth Pursue Excellence, is a summer teen camp organized by the Kingsport YMCA; find out more about this great summer teen program at http://www.ymcakpt.org/youth-development/camp/hype-teen-camp/

HEY EVERY "BIRDY" !
We all know how birds help our gardens. Three bird houses were recently installed in the garden.
|View from the road (Charlemont). First birdhouse on left, front corner;|
birdhouse built by Vernon Maddox
|View from road; this second birdhouse, located right front corner of garden. Also made by Vernon Maddox.|
|Same 2nd birdhouse viewed from right fence|
|Third birdhouse, made by Ron Russum, located at right rear corner of garden.|
Same 3rd birdhouse, close view(s). This is the most popular one. On the right photo, you can even see twigs inside where the birds are building a nest.
Thanks to Vernon Maddox & Ron Russum for making the birdhouses & to all for helping to install these lovely bird condos.
Welcome "birdies" to our community garden!
And to all you gardeners.... enjoy, the birds & the bees, the sun & the trees :) Happy gardening!!
